Probation Violations in Nassau County
Accused of violating your probation?
Probation violations can take place in a variety of ways. When a convicted person fails to perform or properly fulfill the duties designated in a probation arrangement, he or she can be charged with a probation violation. Violations are often brought about by a probation officer who has been put in charge of the oversight of the person on probation. Speak with our Nassau County criminal defense lawyer today if you are arrested for a probation violation. The state does not have to prove your offense beyond a reasonable doubt, but only must prove it by a preponderance of the evidence.
There are a variety of ways you can be charged with a probation violation, depending on the original offense charged in your case. In many cases, the individual who is on probation failed to inform the probation officer of a change in jobs or the loss of employment. After being released on probation from an offense of driving while intoxicated, you can be arrested for a probation violation for the use of liquor. In addition, you can be arrested for the commission of a new crime.
